Considering Riu Palace Riviera Maya

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

My fiance and I are planning on getting married in the Mayan Riviera in February 2013. We haven't decided on a resort yet, but RPRM is number 1 in the running. I just have a few questions that perhaps anyone who had their wedding there could help me with.

 

My fiance's friends can be a bit unruly at times and I want to make sure that the resort is big enough that our more low key guests won't have to be around them all the time. Is the resort large enough so that no one gets sick of seeing each other?

 

I've noticed that there isn't a disco and am wondering if the discos at the sister resorts are close enough that we could walk there and back, even if some of our group has been imbibing a bit.

 

How easy and expensive is it to have a private dinner and reception?

 

Any help you could give would be incredibly appreciated.

I attended a wedding at the Riu Santa Fe one and a half years ago. The Santa Fe is a sister resort immediately next door to the Palace. If you have people in your party that like to 'party' I would suggest you recommend they check out the Santa Fe which seems to be a younger crowd then the Palace. The Santa Fe does have a disco, it is pretty disappointing, but if you have enough drinks and group of good friends I'm sure you'll manage to have a good time just like I did.

Oops, correction, the wedding I attended and the Santa Fe were in Los Cabos Mexico. My most recent trip (where I got engaged) was in the Mayan Riviera, we stayed at the Riu Tequila directly across the road from the Palace. The Tequila has the same type of disco, definitely within walking distance. There are a few sister resorts surrounding the Palace that your friends will be able to go to, again the sister resorts having more of a younger crowd.

Thanks for your feedback. It's funny because my fiance and I just changed our mind on our location and we are now looking at the Riu Palace Los Cabos. Maybe we'll look at pointing the guests who like to party towards the Sante Fe instead of the Palace.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
